Labneh is a Middle Eastern strained yoghurt that is really easy to make and

is a healthier alternative to soured cream or cream cheese. It usually takes

around 12 hours to make, so it's best to prepare it the night before and leave it

to drain in the fridge overnight. You will also need a piece of muslin.

1. To make the labneh mix the salt into the yoghurt - you can do this in the

yoghurt tub to save on washing.

2. Take a piece of clean muslin and spoon the yoghurt into the centre of it.

Gather the muslin and tie it up, then hang it over a bowl and place in the

fridge. You then need to leave this for 12 hours to allow the whey (liquid) to

separate from the yoghurt.

3. After 12 hours, turn out the labneh into a clean bowl (discard the whey)

and mix through the nigella seeds, chilli and mint. Set aside in the fridge

while you roast the aubergines.

4. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas 6.

5. Slice the aubergines in half lengthways and rub all over with the oil, then

sprinkle with the fennel seeds. Place on a baking tray, cut side up. Bake in

the preheated oven for 15 minutes until the aubergine flesh begins to collapse and the skin starts to blacken and burst.

6. Serve the warm roasted aubergines with the labneh alongside. Garnish

with a little extra chilli, mint and nigella seeds, if you like.
